Trivia: Popular Golf Nicknames

Kyle Macland originally shared this list on Google+. As a matter of fact, he shared it in the Google+ golf community. The Google+ golf community has over 10,000 members and is growing every day, and there is just an endless stream of great golf content being shared. Like this! I have never seen this list before, and it was fun going through it. Some are obvious… Like Walrus and Zinger. But others are tough like The Goose and El Gato. Have some fun with this… I sure did!
